Bottle sampled at Muckfest III. Clear red/purple pour with a thin pink head. Aroma of blackberries and funky sourness. Lots of blackberry in the flavor along with some malt before a puckering sour finish. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Deep red, almost purple, in color with a pinkish head. Heavy on the raspberry aroma and a nice blackberry character, too. Pleasant lactic acidity and tartness, a bit of red wine, and wood. Not too much in the way of funk. Excellent fruit flavor with the blackberry and rapsberry, a nice sourness to it, though not overly acidic. Fairly sweet from all the fruit, but a well done beer.

Bottle shared at MuckFest 3 - Saturday Edition. Pours a richer ruby red copper pour, touches of brown, richer haze with orange glowing edges and bottom. A frothy whitish head atop rings, dies to a small layer, laces small. Aromas are richer berry tannins, blackberry skins, tart fruit and seedy elements. Sour lactic presence, touches of brett, mellow bready and biscuity malts. Richer fruity blackberries, lemons, gentle raspberries. Initial lighter end of medium bodied. Rich fruity blackberry and raspberry element, seedy and sour, fruity with touches of jam, mellow sourness grows to a berry lemonade presence, blackberries, lactic acid. Middle is a touch sweeter, but still berry dominant, sour and lactic, touches of yogurt, richer fruit, berry tannins, and lactic elements, lemonade. Touches of brett but this sour is fairly fruit driven. Gentle dust, funk, lactic and sour black raspberry win the game though. I’d say it’s simple but quite good. Not acedic, richer sour fruit that I could drink a lot of. JAXSON (605) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours a deep purple burgundy with a small soft pink head. Nose is nice seedy raspberry, soft vanilla, very pleasant. Mouth is fruit forward, seedy raspberries, tart on the front and drying out over the palate. Some soft vanilla carries through but it’s very dry and seedy. Minimally acidic, very soft profile, but very real, seedy, fresh fruit without any off flavors. This is very nice stuff. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Bottle shared at a recent tasting generously hosted by hannont... Poured a robitussin-like reddish with a bubbly head. This was along the lines of NG Raspberry Tart. Lots os sweetness and ripe raspberry flavor and a hint of tartness in the finish. Clean, dessert like. Would be good over ice cream.

Thanks Beerlando! Purplish colour. Very fruity with balanced tartness. Subtle lactic complexity. Quite nice. It has a lot of flavour and some sweetness, but still carries a mellow lambic character as well. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Pours a cloudy red color with a light pink head. Aroma is fresh berries and some funk. Taste is sweet and very tart. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Dry finish. Really good! alalvarez75 (57) - New York, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Had via bottle via gf that muled this sucka. Poured into my snifter from SH. Perfectly poured if I do say so myself. Wish I could have posted to YouTube.
A: Nice dark violet with a frothy head.
S: Lot of fruit, with a little tartness. Smells like a winner.
T: It’s a chicken dinner. Perfect mix of sweet and sour. You normally can’t fight the funk, but the fruit sure does. Not a nasty dunk...
M: A little more carbonated than I normally like, but I’ll refrain from saying crisp.
O: If you have a buddy that does not like Lambic, this would change their mind. Dunt (316) - Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Opened by Matt for our Sunday tasting. Pours a murky pinkish purple. 1/4’’ worth of effervescent pink head. Nose is full of fresh raspberry aroma, it’s exceptionally bright and tart. Flavor is a little more muted than the nose, still nice and tart though. Mouthfeel is tart, carbonation is moderate, and medium finish. One of the best fruit lambics made in the US, doesn’t have that over the top acetic or lactic sourness. Need to grab another bottle.

Bottle thx to beerlando! Deep rich ruby. Huge bouquet! The house lambik plus the crushed raspberries. Wow this is fun. Ok. Raspberry blackberry clearly. Mold and funk. In a good way of course. Lots if resinous barrel lining. Equal parts pure dry and citric tartness. Balanced, fruity, and refined.
